Default Re: Sever's Disease in young child

Hi Doc,

My son is 10 and is what I would consider - VERY active. Soccer every day at school in school shoes and plays during the season. (if it helps, we live in quite a dry country so the ground would tend to be quite hard)

He plays soccer and has started complaining about a sore heel. He showed me the plantar side of his foot and traced around the whole plantar aspect of the heel. He said it was a bit sore when I squeezed at the sides and into the foot.

He said it is worse after playing soccer.

My podiatrist will be seeing him next week but he mentioned Sever's disease.

I hope I given you enough info but what do you think?
